Become a masterful yoga teacher
and take your practice to the next level.
You Are Invited To The Yoga Experience Of A Lifetime…
 

Dear Yogi,

Are you ready for yoga teacher training, but confused over the many options available?

If so, read on. It may just change your life… (not an exaggeration).

Choosing a yoga teacher training is one of the biggest decisions you make because it not only sets the course of your life and income potential as a teacher, it also sets the tone of your own practice for years to come…

So consider this…

Learning to teach students and share the gift of yoga is only a small part of yoga teacher training… The transformative experience of diving deep into the practice and history of yoga changes your life and the lives of those you touch along the way.

A full immersion of mind, body and soul… in the natural and spiritual essence of Thailand, learning directly from a master yogi, and creator of the Vikasa Yoga Method.

Imagine the smell of the ocean wafting into the open-air studio, practicing yoga on an island made of quartz, energetically and spiritually fuelled by the land and sea.

Imagine learning among practitioners who deeply love and live yoga in their lives, who are focused and committed to deep and profound change in themselves and the world.

Imagine focusing only on your practice, relieved of all responsibilities at home, finally finding the quiet and serenity to commune with your inner truth.

Imagine returning home, a certified yoga teacher, qualified to teach in any studio in town, and ready to create valuable and profitable Vikasa yoga workshops and classes…

…a unique practice few can teach and many will desire to learn.

Announcing a very special and unique 200 hour Vikasa yoga teacher training immersion at the stunning Vikasa Yoga Retreat in Thailand.

I founded Vikasa Yoga to help you open your path to fulfilment… apply the practice of asana and breath work… to deepen your spiritual understanding and commune with your deepest consciousness.

A certification in Vikasa Yoga is ideal for the new and the experienced teacher, yearning to deepen their own practice and diversify offerings for their students.

Namaste,

Why choose Vikasa Yoga?

Vikasa means evolution when translated from Sanskrit. The Vikasa Method is based on individual evolution and spiritual development.

The concept of “evolution of yoga” is centered on the notion that everything in the world evolves constantly. Our primary goal is evolution, and yoga can be seen as a tool to facilitate that.

The Vikasa Yoga Method is an integral system of yoga based predominantly on classical Hatha yoga, with some influence from Himalayan Vinyasa and higher Taoism practices. A fusion of the three lineages allows for a very effective and complete system resulting in personal evolution.

The method is based on universal rules of yoga that ultimately allow the practitioner complete freedom from any particular routine leading to an “intelligent freestyle” of practice.

Emphasis is placed on the journey, or evolution of an individual. Encouraging evolution leads to a natural progression of individuality where uniqueness is celebrated as a natural piece of the oneness we are all  part of. This opposes the often found dissolution of identity and ego which can inspire conformity and unnecessary isolation.

A careful distinction is drawn between oneness and conformity. Oneness being the acceptance of what is, including all that is around you and inside you. Conformity is referenced to include unimportant religious practices and dogmatic systems..

The Vikasa system encourages function within an existing society, rather than against it or apart from it. This allows for deeper connections with the spiritual and physical beings that surround us on a daily basis.

Key principles and rules of yoga are taught, allowing the teachers of Vikasa Yoga and dedicated practitioners to become free from any routines by gaining understanding, knowledge and insight into the methodology and the effects of practice.

When individuality is inspired and oneness within community is celebrated,
the teachings become inclusive of infinite possibilities.

“You can not do yoga – yoga is your natural state…”

“A good teacher can never be stuck in a routine…”

“I am not teaching you anything. I just help you explore yourself…”

Who is this immersion for?

 

This Training Is Not For Everyone.

The depth of the spiritual and physical practice of Vikasa Yoga is for yoga practitioners who yearn for a more profound balance and closeness to their true essence.

We invite you to apply for this training if you:

  • Are a serious student committed to the study of yoga.
  • Wish to become a yoga teacher, differentiate and add to your yoga instruction skill set, or if you just want to dive into a deeper inquiry with yoga.
  • Have a longing for immersion, in a 4 week all encompassing educational and spiritual guided program.
  • Feel a connection or pull to experience the beautiful energy of Thailand.

Our teaching program includes, daily yoga practice, lectures, experiential personal and spiritual development activities, lessons and time to practice yoga teaching skills and techniques, and adequate rest and relaxation.

Unlike a local Yoga Teacher Training, where you go to classes and otherwise live in your normal surroundings [with the stress and responsibilities that come with it], this course is designed to be all-inclusive and immersive, so you can focus purely on your growth for the life changing weeks you are in Thailand.

KONSTATIN MIACHIN

KONSTANTIN MIACHIN

Course director, founder of Vikasa Yoga Academy

Kosta’s journey into yoga has taken him to the far reaches of the world, from remote Himalayan ashrams, to his initiation by a master monk in a sacred Sak-Yant ceremony in Thailand. Kosta has undergone extensive training and was certified with five different schools: Yoga 23, Sivananda Yoga, Mysore Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, Andiappan Yoga and Universal Yoga and maintains close ties to many other yoga schools around the world. The vision for Vikasa Yoga was born upon realization that the deeper dimension of yoga is a spiritual journey and a conscious evolution of the individual. Seeing this as the ultimate human endeavor, he committed his life to supporting others on this path.

Graduation

The best yoga teacher training graduation ceremony on the entire planet.

We don’t like to brag but this is special…

We leave Vikasa around 4pm and hop aboard this incredible sailing boat and set sail for Koh Som Island!

Delicious food and drinks are served before everyone jumps off to swim in the warm, crystal clear waters of the bay… the sound of chilled out beats filling the air.

Music and dancing on the boat as the sun sets before the emotional and joyful graduation ceremony itself.

A truly magical experience shared with special new friends….

A fitting conclusion to what will have been a life changing few weeks.

 

What will I eat?

 

Vikasa serves wholesome health-conscious meals in buffet style as part of your all-inclusive package price. Vegans and vegetarians are catered for with love.

Your day begins with a healthful and energizing brunch. A freshly squeezed juice, tea and coffee, a sunny side up or vegetable omelette, wholegrain toasts, oatmeal muesli with yoghurt or chia seed pudding, super foods, boiled veggies with specialty in-house organic dips, vegetarian sandwiches or pancakes, and of course a variety of fresh-cut tropical fruits.

Dinner includes a hot soup, typical local dishes with tofu, brown rice, two or three vegetarian dishes, fresh salad, dahl, and always one seafood dish. For dessert we serve fruits, occasional delectable mango sticky rice or other uniquely Thai savouring.

Our homemade signature tea is a perfect finish to your meal. We also serve light snacks during afternoon breaks; however many students prefer to eat out while exploring nearby beaches or famous shopping areas.

 

What’s the resort like?

 
 
 

A Place you can call home.

Vikasa Yoga Teacher Training takes place in Vikasa Yoga Retreat. Vikasa is the creation of yoga pioneer Konstantin Miachin, who created this unique place for personal evolution.

Koh Samui enjoys perfect weather almost year round and offers a culturally rich environment to further inspire you.

Vikasa is located by the ocean side on the ring road between Lamai and Chaweng Noi beaches. Right next is Samui Cliff View Hotel, and opposite there’s a Muay Thai boxing school and Sky Gym. We are 20 minutes drive away from Koh Samui International airport, and 35 minutes drive from both Nathon and Lipa Noi ferry terminals.

Vikasa premises are sprayed against mosquitos once a week so you shouldn’t expect to be bothered by it. Just remember to close your room door during sunrise and sunset hours when the mosquitos are usually active. If anything mosquito repellants are available in any pharmacy which are many on the island.

You can get to Koh Samui international airport via .

2 direct flights from Singapore daily (Silkair and Bangkok Air)
2 direct flights from Kuala Lumpur daily (Firefly and Bangkok Air)
1 direct flight from Penang every second day (Firefly)
2 direct flights from Hong Kong daily (Bangkok Air)
at least 10 daily frights from Bangkok (Bangkok Air, and Thai Airlines)
see flights via Phuket, Krabi, Chiang Mai, Pattaya as these are often cheaper (Bangkok Air)
Alternatively there’s an option to fly cheap with AirAsia from Kuala Lumpur or Singapore to Suratthani International Airport located on mainland. From where you will need to take a bus to Donsak pier, then a ferry or speedboat to Koh Samui, and finally a taxi to Vikasa.

Koh Samui climate is tropical and high in both temperature and humidity. Most people find it pleasant. The average temperature is about 30 degrees Celsius, or 86 degrees Fahrenheit. When it is getting too hot, just enter an air conditioned room and you will “recharge your batteries”. A dip in a pool can also be very refreshing. Remember to drink a lot of water so you don’t become dehydrated. You will experience “summer temperatures” here year round. On some days you might find yourself in a refreshing tropical shower for a moment. The rain showers are often short and as island’s water supplies are finite, the rain is needed and important.
Yoga mats and other supplies are available on the spot. Unless your yoga mat is really wicked with a Batman logo on it there’s no need to bring it along. We use Manduka mats at Vikasa. Daily fresh towels are also provided both in your rooms and in yoga spaces.
Let’s start with what you don’t need to bring first. There will be towels available in each room including one beach towel. We also provide with a set of shampoos and soaps that are refilled regularly. We might not have your favourite brand though! Please bring your required set of personal hygiene items but don’t worry in case you forget something. There are plenty of shops you can buy practically anything on Koh Samui. Please note that there are no hairdryers in the rooms so please bring one if necessary. A lot of comfortable clothes that is easy to wash and dry will come handy for your daily yoga practice. Otherwise you won’t actually need a lot of garment other than t-shirts and shorts, light dresses, and of course flip flops. The temperature rarely drops below 24 Celsius, or 75 Fahrenheit, even at night, so no sweaters or jackets please. Don’t forget about sunblock and bikinis!

Standard tourist visa upon arrival is normally valid for 30 days upon arrival to Thailand without prior application for the most of passport holders. Please consult a Thai embassy representative in your home country just to double-check. To extend your visa duration you have several options:

• 30 day extension of stay. You can apply at the local Samui Immigration office for a 1 week extension. This normally takes a few hours at the office and cots 1.900 Baht.

• Overstay and pay fine at departure. You can just pay a small fee of 500 Baht / per day of overstay when you are leaving the country. This procedure is pretty straightforward, and only requires a small amount of cash on hand. There is a special counter for that in every airport as it is a very common practice, so do not worry about it at all. Just save enough and have the cash ready at airport for the amount of days you have overstayed.• Apply for 90 day visa prior your departure. If you want to be totally flexible and stay longer the best option is to apply for this type of visa in your home country before you leave. Cost and processing times vary so please check in advance and follow procedures of your local Thai embassy.

• Fly out, Fly in. Arrange a flight out of Thailand and return, you will be granted another standard visa upon arrival valid for 30 days. Please note that flights form Samui can be expensive if booked last minute so for this option check and book well in advance.

Local currency in Thailand is Thai Baht. You don’t need to bring a lot of cash with you. Banking infrastructure is well-developed on Koh Samui. There are save and reliable ATMs on very corner that accept all types of cards, VISA and Masercard preferred. You can also exchange your home currency at any bank easily.
Prices on your typical groceries including tropical fruits are most likely to be lot cheaper than back home. There are 7/11s and Family Marts that are open 24 hours on every corner in Koh Samui. Sometimes 2 or 3 on one corner! There’s also an awesome open-air shopping mall Central Festival where you can buy anything from beach clothes to electronics and cameras. It is located 15 minutes drive from Vikasa. Not to mention plenty of cute little shops along Chaweng and Lamai beaches, which are the two most busiest areas in Koh Samui just 10 minutes drive from Vikasa. Finally each Friday there’s a laid back night market in Fisherman’s Village that is an absolute must-visit.
Absolutely. Koh Samui is a safe place in general, and Vikasa in particular. This is a very popular upscale tourist destination, and also an island, so you do not need to worry about safety away from home. Vikasa will be like home, the staff are very helpful and warm, and also students become like a family.
You can easily acquire prepaid local SIM card at any 7-11 or Family mart. We recommend AIS One- Two-Call or DTAC Happy. All SIM cards are 3G ready allowing you to browse Internet at very reasonable speed and rates. Don’t forget that there’s a free WiFi throughout Vikasa resort.
Laundry service is outsourced with a next day delivery in most of the cases. Rates for doing laundry are very cheap so don’t worry about maintaining your hygiene requirements. However as we are using outside service providers please try to avoid bringing expensive clothes just to be on a safe side.
